Turtleback Farm Inn

1000 Places to See Before You Die - A Traveler's Life List "Many consider Orcas the most beautiful (of the San Juan Islands), and among its many inns and bed-and-breakfasts the Turtleback Farm Inn is unique in many respects. It's a working farm set on 80 private acres of sheep- and cow-grazing meadows, woods, and duck ponds, with a green clapboard farmhouse that dates back to the late 1800s. Every night is romantic in any of its eleven elegant, uncluttered guest rooms, and every morning is special thanks to a prizewinning breakfast so memorable that it's featured regularly in food magazines, as well as in the inn's own Turtleback Cookbook."
--Patricia Schultz, 1000 Places to See Before You Die - new edition 2012

"It was in one of these old farmhouses, lovingly restored, that I found the perfect country inn.... A sense of peace and calmness enfolds me as soon as I walk through the door, and I sigh deeply, knowing I have finally found the right place." (click for full review)
--John Doerper, Pacific Epicure's Garden Pages

"My vote for the slickest inn on Orcas goes to Susan and Bill Fletcher's two-story green-and-white Turtleback Farm...a perfectly marvelous B & B."
--Jerry Hulse, Los Angeles Times travel editor

"With its forest-green clapboard and ivory trim, its well tended flower gardens, and its unpretentious sitting room with Early American furniture and Persian carpets, Turtleback exudes the old fashioned good taste of a 1940's June Allyson movie."
--Charles Michener - Travel & Leisure

--Susan LaTempa - Westways Magazine

--Carole Jacobs - Sunset Magazine

"Turtleback Farm Inn represents the ideal choice for those seeking an intimate lodging, the pastoral bed & breakfast veiled amid 80 acres of sheep-studded meadows, duck-graced ponds and elm-shaded cottage gardens."
--Andrew Harper - Hideaway Report

--Alicia Ahn - NW Palate Magazine
